London, July 28 : Cambridge University's poorest-funded college - Selwyn -- has topped the colleges' degree results.

According to The Independent, the college, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, has moved from fourth to first place in the table compiled annually by Peter Tompkins, a consulting actuary who is a former student of Trinity College.
